PIR Center - UNIDIR joint seminar “Nuclear Nonproliferation and Disarmament: Where to after the 2015 NPT Review Conference?”, Geneva, Switzerland 18.06.2015

The Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT) is widely considered to be a cornerstone of international security. In May 2015, its 191 states party failed to agree an outcome at their five-yearly Review Conference in New York. Our panel of experts will consider the question: where does the 2015 failure leave nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation efforts, and what lies ahead?
